I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.

This is Dr. DavidI am a cancer doctor.I am sorry you are having these pains.have you been sexually active? sexual activity can often cause trauma and bleeding and that is more common than cervical cancer or ovarian cancer.ovarian cancer would not tend to cause excessive vaginal bleeding.uterine fibroids are very common and tend to cause more bleeding as wellyou need to go to your GP doctor or the A&E hospital and get a gyn examination and pelvic ultrasound.chances of cancer are still small at your age.do you have a GP doctor? or hospital where you can go and get some testing?
